Just for FUN
Just playing around with posting some pictures from last year. We'll put up some current ones soon but right now all there is to look at around here is MUD!
This is a picture of one of the mobile chicken coops (called tractors). The electric poultry fence keeps them safe from predators. The fence is large yet very portable. It and the coop are moved every few days so that they always have fresh pasture to scratch on. Makes for HAPPY, HEALTHY chickens!
That's King the rooster and some of his girls. Most people don't realize it, but you don't have to have a rooster in your flock to get eggs! The hens lay just fine without him (although the eggs will not be fertile). But they seem to like having a man around anyway.
We have LOTS of pics to share! We'll post more as we have time.
PLEASE leave comments!
